Ahh, right, back door information.  Which is GOOD in many
cases, and David has previous association with Qwest (if
memory serves me correctly), so knowing the right people
with enable on a router helps.

The issue I think Mury and I are talking about, at least 
one of them, is that The normal process of getting connectivity
with a backbone does not see IPv6 as a product.
